Black lace love

Hooray for Thursday, and my fun colorful look -- I love the pairing of chartreuse and turquoise.

Black lace love

I love this black lace skirt. Possibly the best $13 I spent all year. I would even argue that this is more versatile than any of my little black dresses.

This is the necklace to match the earrings I wore yesterday. I have an aversion to wearing sets together. It feels too matchy. (Don't talk to me about matching the belt to the shoes, it is very, very matchy but I just felt like doing it.)

I know how you feel about matching jewelry, I can't do it either!
I don't usually bother matching shoes and belt but I love it with a bold color, your shoes and belt look fantastic!

ACK! I've been LOVING turquoise and chartreuse look ever since I saw it featured on an episode of Gok Wan but haven't managed to pull it off to the degree you have. The shoes avec la belt are incredible!

missvinylahoy said...

I loooove this color combo. And, I def. wore my velvet blazer and belted it because I thought that's what you would do!

I also dislike wearing matching jewelry sets together, it really is too matchy-matchy for me too!

Kristin said...

That is absolutely a perfect color combo! And I'm crazy in love with your necklace!

Terri said...

Ah, I like the necklace. Well done!

Has anybody ever told you that you look like the beautiful America Ferrera?

Anyway, lace is everywhere. Yours isn't so bad at all. Nice compilation, by the way.
